Online Class | Dynamic Dialogue: The Art of Subtext [Susan Meyers]

VIDEO & TIME CHANGE: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom). The time of class has been updated from the print catalog. The class now takes place from 12 – 4 pm.

Introductory / Intermediate | Do you want to liven up your dialogue? It might surprise you to learn that the most important things aren’t necessarily what’s said, but what’s not. This class introduces you to the art of subtext: those implied messages that give invisible life to the things we say. Through writing exercises and sample stories by authors such as Maxine Hong Kingston, Flannery O’Connor, Charles Baxter, and Karen Russell, you’ll learn to master the most important element of dynamic dialogue: what’s left unsaid.
